When tomatoes are cooked in a healthy fat like olive oil, it increases our absorption of the phytochemical lycopene, which may lower the risk of heart disease.

SInce we don't do garlic much at our house, some nice grated Parmesan and Romano are a good substitute. I love the idea of charred tomatoes.

I love this recipe and halve it for myself for lunch/brunch/lite dinner. However, charring the tomatoes for 4 minutes makes the eggs very cold and I absolutely hate cold eggs. So - I char the tomatoes first, then add oil to fry the eggs. Hot eggs on top of the cool tomatoes is okay. The reverse, not so much.

When I am cooking eggs for breakfast, I always flip them. Are you not suppose to flip eggs if you are wanting some of the yolk to run?

This recipe is awesome! I made some alterations - I seared the sliced tomatoes with sliced garlic in a little olive oil and drizzled a little balsamic reduction on top with fresh cracked pepper. I put all that on super nutty bread and instead of frying the eggs, I poached them. It was AMAZING! I have pinned it, and am enjoying this bad boy a couple times a week. (And sometimes with avocado)

Really delicious! The tomato sweetens when cooked this way, and the garlic is lovely with the egg. Cooking directions are well described. We served it with leftover soup, and a small salad. Thanks so much for an easy, but tasty, dinner recipe.
